Early Summertime Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

Birds of the Day: Chipping Sparrow, Blue Jay, House Finch, Mourning Dove, and Tufted Titmouse.

The Red Fox, that accidently got caught in my Raccoon trap earlier this year survived the trama. I periodically see the Fox in the nighttime security videos (sometimes even with a mouse or rat in its mouth). This morning it was out early in the morning munching on some leftovers the Vultures left behind. I had to laugh a bit later when one of the Fawn twins tried to challenge the Fox. The Fawns are getting bigger and bolder as they nibble on the plants in my Wildflower garden.
